Author's notes

Two plants in Aranda. I'm not sure if anyone has recorded these here yet. One was in flower, the other looked like the buds had been glued together...

I suspect that is the first record of them in Aranda Bushland. I checked today and they are doing well this year on Black Mountain.

There's one growing out of the middle of a walking track on Black Mountain! :D
